It depends on the state. Most states do not take a new spouse's income into account when determining the child support amount, so even if the custodial parent remarries, child support amounts are likely to stay the same.

Yes. They are still the child's parent and responsible for supporting their child.



No - the new spouse isn't responsible for other men's children.


You don't. Child support is by definition, the non-custodial parent paying to help cover the child-rearing expenses incurred by the custodial parent. Support payments are set by the court and the court would have to stop it. If the mother remarries and the new father adopts the child with your permission, then the child support stops.


Of course. The child is still your child and you must continue to pay child support unless the new spouse legally adopts your child. In that case, your parental rights would end.


In general, no. (I suppose the answer might be different if she married Donald Trump.)


No, only the biological parents income will be used to figure the child support amount. No step-parent income is used in the state of Maryland.

The income of your ex-spouse's partner is irrelevant to child support; only your ex-spouses income counts.


Remarriage should not affect the child support order.


No. Child support is paid by non custodial parent, not step parent. Income of a New Spouse: Contrary to common belief, Illinois law permits judges to consider the income of a second spouse when establishing or modifying child support awards. The door swings both ways, too. A custodial parent who remarries a well-to-do spouse may suffer a reduction in child support to be paid by the non-custodial parent.19 Likewise, a non-custodial parent who remarries a spouse of substantial means may be required by the court to pay a higher child support than if the marriage had not taken place. http://www.illinoisdivorce.com/family_law_articles/etsblishing_child_support.php


Yes. When your ex remarries, the child remains your child. It does not matter if she has another one. You still have to pay for the child you fathered.

Generally no, though there is a presumption of primary residential custody for the obligee parent. In states like California, the amount of time the obligor parent has the child affects the amount of child support ordered.ClarificationChild support orders and custody orders are separate. Generally, the parent who pays child support pays it to the custodial parent.


Typically courts will not penalize a child by reducing support payments because a parent has had another child because this is not seen as being in the best interest of the child.


Not automatically, but can be raised as a rebuttable presumption. see links


Just because your ex remarries, you cannot lower your child support. Further, If you remarry a millionaire, your ex wife can stake no claim on that income and try to raise your support.

The parent. It was the parent who incurred the expenses to support the child.


No, a spouses income is never taken into consideration when child support is being figured. Only the income of the 2 biological parents will be used.


No.The only way that rights can be terminated for that purpose is if mother remarries and step parent legally adopts.


The custodial parent is the parent in which the child resides with. My son lives with me and I am the custodial parent, his dad has visitation rights and pays child support.


You can try, but the mother's new spouse isn't responsible for your child.
